So here is one for both men and women to weigh in on. Does it matter to you if your spouse wears their wedding ring or not? I have noticed over the past couple of years that there is this trend toward a lot of people (mostly men I hate to say it) who don’t wear their wedding rings. And it always makes me wonder why. It’s not like, if they did wear the rings at one time, they don’t have a permanent indent in their finger…LOL.
When I got married I could not wait to get the ring on my finger and one on my husbands as a symbol, a sign to us and the world that we are together, a couple, you know the whole “two become one” thing. So, I wear my ring all the time. I rarely take it off unless I am doing something really messy. The same holds true for my husband. Which I love about him. He is great about wearing his ring and he knows the importance of it to me which is even cooler.
So what’s the real deal on that whole thing? Why do some choose not to wear a ring at all? Is it because they really aren’t committed to the relationship so, they don’t want that ring to be in the way should something better happen a long? Or is jewelry just a nuisance to them? And then I wonder, if one spouse does wear their ring faithfully, and one doesn’t does it bother the spouse that wears the ring?
Or could it be that I am just a strange anal woman with really weird ideals of what forever after is supposed to be????
I remember the words we said to each other so clearly “I give you this ring as a sign of my love and faithfulness”. Those words are a part of my heart, and a part of my marriage. So, to wear or not to wear…that is the question.
